Natural Omega-3 Mix contains cranberries, roasted almonds, walnuts, pecans, raw pistachios, and pepitas (pumpkin seeds). The Nutboxs Natural Omega-3 Mix is ideal for adding Omega-3 fatty acids to your diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish, such as salmon, tuna, and halibut, other plants, and nut oils. Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development. They have also become popular because they may reduce the risk of heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish (particularly fatty fish such as mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna, and salmon) at least 2 times a week. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. This Trail Mix is great for snacking on whether at home or at work.
